Message-ID: <9B2DE9094C827E44988F5ADAA6A2C5DAB728F1@HQ-MAIL9.ptcnet.ptc.com>
To: <public-xml-core-wg@w3.org>

The XML Core WG telcons are every other week.

Our next telcon will be 2010 September 8.

Status and open actions

TAG concern wrt 3023bis, +xml media types and fragids
Henry sent email about this at

3023bis says that the +xml implies that the resource is suitable for 
processing by generic xml processors.  And it says that such xml
processors should handle fragment ids.  Specifically, handling the
fragment identifiers in an rdf+xml document is not something that a 
generic xml processor could do.

The TAG was leaning toward removing the statement from 3023bis that
says that fragid syntax and semantics is something that any generic
xml processor can handle in a +xml resource.

Norm and John (among others) weighed in; see the thread at
Norm's latest (as of July 18) is at

Per Noah's email at
there will be no new status until September.

Shortname referencing XLink versus XLink 1.1
Mohamed asked if xlink should point to xlink11; see

We asked Ian about our options, and he pointed us to
as an example of the kind of thing we could add to XLink 1.0.
Several WG members expressed support for doing something like
that.  We should make a decision on our next telcon.
